Besides having daddy home with us for a 3 day weekend, gosh, there is nothing I love more about labor day than a giant pronto pup, a petting zoo full of baby animals, and the best people watching you ever did see! Oh Eastern Idaho State Fair, you never cease to disappoint! Last year I was pregnant and had to miss out on my favorite pronto pup so that was a must this year and pretty much the first thing we did. Since Liam can't speak for himself yet, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that it was his second favorite part of his first trip to the fair!
I was so excited to take him to the petting zoo to see all of the baby animals! He looked at the rows of bunnies like, "nothing I haven't seen before, carry on" but the cows and goats on the other hand!!! He was smiling and giggling as they greedily approached his chubby little hands reaching out for them. Next year, we will definitely try feeding them.
Liam is cruising away now and wanted to walk everywhere we went! Besides the petting zoo, we tried to avoid the crowds by finding any patch of open grass we could so he could walk to his little heart's content.
When you go to the fair without kids in tow like we did the last couple of years, you don't really realize how many fun things they have specifically for kids. In the past we would just skip past them and move on but this year when we were actually looking, we noticed so many fun activities! We found this tent full of cut out farm pictures, meet Liam the dairy cow...
They also had a little toy rocking horse that he LOVED. Remember how I said the pronto pup was his second favorite part of the fair?? I think it's safe to say this was his first favorite! He has a rocking caterpillar at home that we had stored away until he was big enough to use it. I think it it is time to get it out to play!
Our sweet boy was tuckered out and ready to go home for a nap after a few hours of fun. I can't think of a better way to have spent our Labor Day! Speaking of Labor Day ... I'm so grateful for a husband who works so hard to support our family and am grateful for the wonderful job he has doing what he loves. Hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day too! XO
